Revival is a novel similar to Crazy Heart and A Star is Born that celebrates America's renewed passion for folk music and singer-songwriters, while telling an intimate love story about a young female songwriter and older male songwriter, set in concert halls, bars, coffeehouses, open mics and recording studios. The author covered folk music in the Boston Globe for 20 years, and is a folksinger who regularly performed A Prairie Home Companion. Songwriter Catie Curtis says "The characters are so believable you want to go hear them in concert," and Americana star Mary Gauthier calls it "A totally beautifully love story." Sixties star Tom Paxton says, "I recommend it very highly," and Maine folk legend Gordon Bok calls it "just about the warmest, most nourishing book I've read."
